Went her because the museum next door was closed two days in a row. It was about Africa when we visited. Small display and a bit boring I taught.

Have been quite a few times now to the CCCB and each was as different and rewarding as the last, with great exhibitions and concerts for free. The Primavera Sound concerts were energetic and engaging, and the exhibitions varied and interesting. Nice architecture too and pretty central. Great shop too! Worth a look in.

This is near the top of the mountain and the red tour bus stops there. It looks interesting, but DO NOT GO THERE, IT IS A TOURIST DIVE. The music is crazy, stupid, blasted loud and is emceed by someone who sounds like a Cancun beach party with better Spanish. We could not find a decent restaurant in the whole... More

The exhibit is informative and offers diverse perspectives on design and art in africa. Particular intriguing were the video interviews.

Human+ is a very interesting exhibition and well done. It shows what science is doing for people who face physical challenges owing to amputations, illness or birth defects. It also poses important questions about how we want to be human in the future. Should we all add antennas to our heads in order to be able to sense colours?

In Barcelona for the holidays. We saw two terrific exhibits: DRAP15, a show of Catalan artists who use recycled and found materials. Terrific work and great idea - made me think about what recycled material could be in my own work (choreography). Also saw The Human Experience, an exhibit about the future of what it will mean to be human... More

We have visited CCCB twice, today for the exhibit called 'Humans'. It is a well organized and huge space. Well mantained as well.

Great exhibition and beautiful pictures. While you would think it's about the most important events from 2015, it's an exhibition about the pictures that won prices over 2015. Still a great overview of the most important events over the past year and a half and some wonderful pictures. Definitely have to check out the video part at the end of... More

Sorry but I do not get it. There was a lot here, but my Spanish is insufficient to make it a valuable experience. Do not recommend

Staying in El Raval

Neighborhood Profile
El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
